The cast and crew of the new Bond film, Skyfall, are in Turkey filming scenes for the latest 007 adventure.

Director Sam Mendes told a press conference that he felt it was important to have Daniel Craig in the title role.

Craig, who is playing Bond for the third time, praised his co-stars Berenice Marlohe and Naomie Harris.

He said: "They're serious actresses who are really stamping their mark on this film and it has been a joy working with both of them."

The storyline will take Bond to London, China, Turkey and Scotland but Mendes said he is cautious not to reduce the locations into clich├ęs.
